"Lauren Dill is an exceptional leader with a thirst and drive that is unparalled.  She would be an asset to any organization due to her work ethic and intelligence!" -- Rhonda Pickens

Angela Gutsch

"Dr. Dill is one of the most exceptional educational leaders that I have met.  We co-chaired a curriculum leadership organization and within minutes I knew that she was the type of person that you needed on your team.  She is highly efficient, intelligent and just about any other positive word that one can think of.  I would highly recommend her for any leadership position."  -- Dr. Angela Gutsch

Tyson Bennett

"In every organization there are probably only a few highly motivated, crazy productive and intelligent people that are relied upon to carry more responsibilities than most. It's like this because the "go-getters" and great leaders never blame, never complain, and never quit. They get the job done, get it done right, and they're a joy to work with. Dr. Dill is that kind of person..." -- Dr. Bennett
